Avnet on the same frequency as customers

2 April 2008 News

Avnet distributes a variety of crystal frequency products to fit electronic applications from realtime clocks, microcontroller timing, communications and audiovisual to RF applications.

The company offers top brands such as Murata, Abracon, Hosonic and Yoketan whose product portfolios include resonators, crystal units, oscillators, filters, discriminators and SAW devices.

Murata's ceramic processing technology and unique piezo-electric material has led to the development of a range of small and thin ceramic resonators - designated 'Ceralock' - that offer high oscillation frequency and remarkable oscillation tolerance. These products are designed for use as a stable timing source for microprocessors. With the option of built-in capacitors, these are well matched to microcontroller solutions, reducing placement costs and increasing reliability. Murata also offers SAW resonators for use at higher frequencies to complete the range of frequency control products. The company also supplies components such as 'Cerafil' ceramic filters and SAW filters for use in high performance audiovisual systems.

Abracon's new industrial grade CMOS oscillators offer tight stability, fast start-up time and exceptional phase noise, jitter and current consumption. The ASFLT and ASET series have been developed for target applications such as home networking via AC sockets, wireless LAN, mobile communications, PLC modems, WiMax and other high precision applications where replacing a clipped sine wave TXCO with a CMOS precision oscillator is advantageous. The company also offers a full range of programmable oscillators, including conventional quick turn programmable oscillators and economical low jitter, high performance programmable oscillators.

Abracon also offers CMOS MEMS oscillators with miniaturised silicon-based internal MEMS resonators, allowing for small sizes not available using quartz-based oscillator technology. In addition, they require less power and can withstand higher levels of shock and vibration than the quartz variety.
